The accomodation is over priced , run down ,noisy late at night & the furniture & appliances are well & truely out of date & uncomfortable probably suitable for a football trip if you are using it as a place to keep your belongings & maybe pass out after a big night on it

Booking was messed up to start. Room was old and in need of upgrade, would have been good about 15 years ago. Shower took 5 minutes to get hot and was hard to get wet under, very noise room, Old tv and the lovely chairs oh my bottom.

Our room was lovely, very clean even although it was slightly dated we had a huge room on the ground floor with a king size bed and 2 chairs... More
